In the Sugar Mill, Caneel Beach Terrace and Caneel Beach Bar and Grill, there is a more casual atmosphere and gentlemen may choose to wear either long or short pants as part of their attire. During the daytime, please bring a shirt, wrap or cover-up to wear over your bathing suits when enjoying our restaurants, bars and public areas. On our tennis courts, traditional tennis attire is required. Collared shirts for gentlemen and a tennis dress or full-length blouse with skirt or shorts is appropriate for ladies. Proper tennis shoes are required for play on the courts.
